Mock Trial Info Meeting

From Dana Leib ’14:


Are you interested in the law? Do you like telling people when you object to things? Do you enjoy commanding a room with sexy words like “probative” or “adjudicative”?

Then you should join the Wesleyan Mock Trial Team. We are a student-run organization that competes on a regional and even a national level against other university teams. As we construct cases,we discuss and form legal theories, take on witness roles, and lawyer up.

Whether you’re fluent in legalese or just love the Law and Order marathons, Mock Trial is a great way to develop your public speaking and critical thinking skills while gaining an understanding of the American legal system.

If you can’t make the informational meeting and/or want more information, contact dleib(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Date: September 16th
Time: 7PM – 8PM
Place: PAC001

Sylvan Esso & kaleidoscope @ WestCo Cafe


From Eric Lopez ’15:

RPMU Presents Sylvan Esso & kaleidoscope

Sylvan Esso looks to put on the first big show for WestCo Cafe this coming Friday with their dancing beats and riveting vocals. Sylvan Esso is a collaboration between vocalist Amelia Meath and electronic musician Nick Sanborn. Meath’s powerful voice is front and center, unjoined by fellow harmonizers as it is in her folk group, Mountain Man. Sanborn, who plays bass in the genre-destroying Megafaun, creates intricate, pulsing grooves for Meath’s voice to inhabit. check out their soundcloud.

kaleidoscope is Keenan Burgess ’16 and one of the best beat makers on campus. His newest song “Aurora” is filled with floating vocals and an ethereal sensation all over it. Burgess played an opening set last semester for Sweater Beats and the Clam Casino-esque sounds played beautifully there. You can check out the rest of his sounds on his Soundcloud page, which includes a great rework of Cassie’s “All My Love”, and grab some older tracks off his Bandcamp page.

Set Times to be announced on Facebook.

Date: Today
Time: 10 pm
Place: WestCo Cafe
Cost: Nada
